Over my period of study, I have discovered that one of the major challenges with carrying out or assigning members to a group task is mainly the lack of an effective communication channel. Having been a victim of a set back due to this issue, I made use of my IT intellect to create a platform for eliminating failure to communicate between group members. This led to the development of a project management system which is today, called SMARTGuroo with the aim of making students work SMARTER.
SMARTGuroo is project management system that provides students with a real-time platform to communicate, share ideas and files/documents with ease.
SMARTGuroo's modern and user friendly UI smartly places all project/group discussions, files and activities on a single page for ease of accessibility. This allows its user to be productive at anytime, any day and anywhere using an internet capable computer of mobile device.
This excellent idea has been praised by my lecturers and peers at my University which has been a source of motivation for extra development. This led me to create a prototype version that is currently being adopted and utilised by first and second year TME students of the University of Greenwich and, their utilization of SMARTGuroo has also made me receive more appraisals and impressive feedbacks.
My overall experience with this website?Dominik 2nd Year Information and Communication Technology University of Greenwich
Very, very good and impressive, I was surprised that it hasn't been developed by a corporation as it looks very professional. Every aspect has been thought through very well. All the files, posts, meetings, uploads, groups, associates and even the date of posting in the name of a file. It looks very professional and it provides a great evidence for good team management which could be used to improve individual LinkedIn profiles. If one is contributed to keeping it up to date with every news in their project, they can use it as an evidence for being a successful team member/leader. Rating 10/10
